Adolf Hitler and Munich
After Hitler was discharged from the German Army in March 1920, he returned to Munich and went to work full-time for the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazi Party), which was headquartered in the city. He rented a small bedroom at Thierschstrasse 41 from 1920 to 1929 (the building you have just visited). Later, he rented a second room to use as an office. In 1936, the Munich city council placed a plaque on the building which read, "Adolf Hitler lived in this house from 1 May 1920 to 5 October 1929". The building still stands; Hitler's former room is used for storage.
Beer Halls and the Munich Beer Hall Putsch.
Beer halls are a traditional part of Bavarian culture. Munich is the city most associated with beer halls; almost every brewery in Munich operates a beer hall.
The Bürgerbräukeller , located in Munich, was a particularly prominent beer hall in Bavaria that lent its name to the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch, an attempted Nazi coup led by Adolf Hitler. The Bürgerbräukeller had long been a Nazi meeting place, and was the starting point of the 1923 coup which took place on 8–9 November 1923. Approximately two thousand Nazis were marching to the Feldernhalle (a monument in the city centre), when they were confronted by a police cordon, which resulted in the deaths of 16 Nazi party members and four police officers. The beer hall has since been demolished.
How did Oktoberfest begin?
The festival originated on October 12, 1810, in celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria.
The festival concluded five days later with a horse race held in an open area that came to be called Theresienwiese (“Therese’s green”). The following year the race was combined with a state agricultural fair, and in 1818 booths serving food and drink were introduced. By the late 20th century the booths had developed into large beer halls made of plywood, with interior balconies and bandstands.
Schottenhamel - The Oldest Beer Tent
The tent you have just visited is the oldest beer tent, in 1867, the forerunner of the Schottenhamel tent was still a small wooden shack with 50 seats. Today, the large festival hall alone can accommodate more than 6,000 guests. The Schottenhamel family invented the Oktoberfest beer in the hot summer of 1872.
